A good tip for finding a blowing crack is to put a small bore tube in your ear and pass the other end over the suspicious area and you should be able to hear it quite easily.

There is a part of me that thinks you don't need to in this case.

Not really sure. I'm with Barry. Need a clearer picture.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

On second thoughts, if you DO find a fracture somewhere, which I find highly unlikely, it surely must be a case of a warrenty repair.

Kind regards,

Haha. Mine blew itself into 2 parts whilst I was tanking it up the M40 many years ago. The replacement didn't last long either. Useless bits of kit.

RAC still insisted the sent a man out to see it it could be fixed rather than just send the recovery truck...honestly! He took one look and called the truck.
